James Reid on Nadine Lustre: ‘It was really hard when I started falling for her’
050316-JamesNadine2_PUSH.jpgOn Tonight with Boy Abunda, Nadine Lustre and James Reid revealed why they didn’t fall for each other earlier. Host Boy Abunda asked the couple, “you've been friends for quite a while. Bakit hindi kayo nagkagustuhan noon?” Nadine answers, “um..mahabang kwento yun.. kasi kami, ako nun trabaho lang talaga. Gusto ko kasi mag-focus.” 

Boy followed up with, “kahit katiting na gusto wala? What was stopping you?” James said, “siguro para sa akin hindi ko siya na-appreciate nun. I wasn't, I couldn't see her for … over time she grew on me. But I didn’t appreciate her back then.”

Now that the two are open with their feelings for each other, Boy asked, “ano ba ang pribado? Ano ba ang public?” James said, “it was really hard when I started falling for her. It was um… it’s hard to hide from the public. It was too hard and I just wanted to let everyone know.”

Nadine, meanwhile, confessed, “ako nung una Tito Boy, ayoko po talaga kasi nga magulo po e, so ayoko gusto ko po private lang talaga. Sabi ko hindi naman important kung alam ng iba sabi ko. But then ang daming nagtatanong tapos may mga lumalabas na photos so parang ang hirap naman magsinungaling…” 

James continued, “and then especially when it’s obvious na may something na and then we say no.”

Boy then asked their plans for James’s birthday on May 11. Nadine said, “secret… matalino siya kahit kaunting clue nage-gets po niya.”
